Frieda Adu-Brempong

Civic Innovation Fellow

Frieda is an accomplished professional with a passion for bringing innovative public sector solutions to life. At Bennett Midland, she supports digital public sector innovators through the Bloomberg Philanthropies Innovation Teams.

Frieda has played a critical role in Bennett Midland’s support for New York City justice initiatives, including the implementation of Raise the Age, new legislation which raised the age of criminal responsibility for young people. She also supported the Justice Implementation Task Force—an interdisciplinary body of experts advancing New York City’s ten-year plan to close the Rikers Island jail complex.

Frieda’s work is guided by a commitment to mitigating racial and economic disparities, including those pertaining to public health. She led program design for and supported the launch of a racial and economic justice initiative and fellowship program based in the U.S. South, the E Pluribus Unum Fund. Frieda also supported United Way of New York City to expand access to emergency COVID testing and life-saving vaccinations within Black communities by harnessing the power of Black faith networks.

Frieda holds a Bachelor’s degree from Dickinson College and is currently pursuing an MBA at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business with concentrations in Healthcare, Accounting, and Entrepreneurship.
